How do you feel? Admit it, it was easier than you thought , right?
I am still drinking green tea this morning!:-)
So here are my stats:
Jan 1, 2013 = 160.4 pounds
Jan 31st, 2013 = 155.8 pounds ( and that is right in the middle of "that time of month") So I am sure it will be less by next week.
That is a loss of 4.6 pounds in a month.
In total I lost 1/2 inch around my neck
2 1/4 around the chest
3/4 inches lost around ribs
1/2 inch lost on hips
1 inch lost around buttox
1/2 inch gained around upper thigh ( probably due to not enough activity!)
1 1/2 inches down on upper arm
1 1/2 inches lost around abdomen!!!!!
What I noticed was that that initial 2 weeks saw the greatest change in weight and inches lost, and then in the next 2 weeks there was still loss, but a lot slower ( there were a few meals in there that I could not avoid)
The good thing is that I know , I KNOW , I can lose more or maintain based on lifestyle CHANGES, habits broken and although the rest of the weight I want to lose may come off slower, at least I know it will be done in a healthy sort of way. NO FADS , no gimmicks! BUT LIFESTYLE CHANGE! I can't emphasize that any more! It is clinically proven to help you live longer and a healthier life! - better proven success in some cases than medication. No don't go throw out your pills, but make lifestyle changes and keep communicating with your doctor and adjust accordingly!
Lost a few more inches here and there, put on a 1/4 inch here and there ( but I think that is hormonal) I will measure again in a month!
